  1. Hi All, We just picked up a Yaris GR Hybrid. It doesn't have any extra power. It's basically a upgrade in looks. 18" low profiles make it a bit hard, but the rest is OK. Racing seats , leather/alcantara. It seems a lot quieter than our old Icon Brakes seem better also. The badge on front/rear and steering wheel nice for resale. It seems to be a facelift rather than anything, Haven't tried the ICE model.
  2. Hi, this fault sounds like the Brake Master Cylinder seals are getting worn out, expect it to happen again and get more frequent. Your mech's hourly rate is a bit pricey. I would hunt around for a smaller indepenant garage. It's fairly simple job for a home mech.
  3. M hi, if you have Sat Nav, if you go above the speed limit by 5mph you'll get a beep and the MPH symbol goes Red. Set up via Settings in Sat Nav.
  4. Hi, I got first 2 services thrown in with purchase deal, and have paid £299 for next 2, incl MOT's.
  5. Hi, One fitting at a time. Don't completely undo the fitting. Once the fluid starts coming through with NO bubbles, tighten the fitting. Then go to the appropriate wheel brake cylinder and bleed each one at a time. Start with the furthest wheel from the brake master cylinder, finishing with the one nearest. Keep checking the master cylinder fluid level, keep it topped up. Good Luck.
  6. Hi, I would go with Stantheman's idea of the MAF sensor. First off disconnect and clean the plug, Secondly remove and clean the sensor (it wont like (EasyStart) if no fix then replace it.
  7. Hi. Enter through driver's door. open bonnet and connect jump start leads (slave battery). then use the unlock doors button on driver's door arm rest..
  8. Hi, you can get the wiring loom off e-bay. you also need to have a GPS antenna connected.
  9. Hi, if it sounds rattley, it's more likely to be the chain tensioner shoe that's worn. At 251k, km's or 150k miles, I would expect something worn. Run your engine and carefully put a long screwdriver point on the timing chain cover, and the handle end to your ear. you'll hear anything going on in there.😃

    Hi, I bought for wife's Yaris from e bay, £240, complete with Sat Nav aerial and connectors. I fitted it myself, (you might need adapter plate). Then on My Toyota register it.( should get fitting instructions also).. Fitting was easy enough, but I don't know about CHR.. By the way I was quoted £800, so a good saving.
  11. Shuan Hi, They should just prise out. When you look at them, there should be a tiny slot one one edge, flick them out using a thin screwdriver or plastic trim tool.
  12. Hi, it sounds like you've got a short circuit somewhere. It might be down to damp weather. Try and do a longer run (than school run) with the recirc selected and warm air or A/C selected.
  13. Hi, it's fuse #1, 10 amp. I'd check each fuse box as I'm not sure which model etc you have. If the fuse is OK I'd check the wiring through tailgate hinge area.
  14. RoanneO Hi, Is the door lock frozen?? Try warming the key with a cigarette lighter, and put key into door lock. Heat transfer action takes place and an ANTI-clockwise twist should unlock things. Good Luck
  15. Flash 22 hi, does it ever get that cold down in the SE corner of Kent??? You should try out Aberdeen. 🎅⛷️🏂
